Headlight Lens Diameter

Hello all,
I have searched all over the internet to try and find the diameter of the headlight reflector buckets on a SP1. I am looking to install angel eyes and I can get a set for 30 bucks on Aliexpress versus 100 bucks on ebay. Only problem is Aliexpress just sells the rings classified by diameter not make and model fitment. If anyone has this info that would be great. Thank you.

There's only one way to find out.......measure it?

I would look the a perpendicular angle to the light and try to get a radius. Do the math for the circumference round to the nearest whole number in CM and try to match up the closest angel eye.

or ask Ben at RC51 parts if there's a busted up headlight he could take a look at for ya. He has been ridiculously helpful to me in the past.

Thanks Hig,
I guess I'll have to just tear it apart and measure it. Maybe I can get it out of one of the sellers on e-bay. I will post the diameter when I find out for future reference.

No need to tear it apart...just eyeball it.

Diameter found

So I managed to contact a dealer on ebay; he told me the angel eye diameter is 120mm.
